A move to check bogus voting, the district administration has prepared smart voting cards for voters. And for the purpose, the administration has appointed one or two teachers from each school as block-level officers (BLO).
Their responsibilities include card distribution to voters. However, it has been reported the concerned BLOs are neglecting the move and the cards have been found in miserable condition in the schools. Voting cards have been found in some schools in Kalamna area.
And when asked about this matter to teacher they responded by saying that this is ‘non-academic work’. They also said that that they have distributed the cards to voters those addresses they could locate.
And some cards couldn’t dispatch as they are unable to locate address of some voters. And those cards have been kept in the schools. They also added that it is not mandatory for the house to house distribution.
The Assembly elections in the state are scheduled on October 21.
